Everything happened on time, which for Thailand is sometimes surprising! Bus left from Phuket at 7.01am and ferry arrived in Koh Tao at 14.50. There is nowhere to buy food between bus station and Koh Tao. You can buy water and snacks (Peanuts, chips, cup noodles) in the ferry but other wise I would recommend to bring snacks with you and eat a breakfast :)

It would be nice if the driver didn't use his phone to text while driving - it may not be against the law in Thailand, but he's responsible for all the passengers he is driving. The air con on the catamaran was too cold!

I’m glad I got my ticket through 12go.asia. The transfer process was fast, efficient, and seamless. In a country where english is limited, I could have easily been confused and held-up and missed my connections.
